Having worked with many clients over the years, it is always interesting to hear what people look for when looking for someone to complete their project. We know that today most people use Google to find what they are looking for, such as a builder. But how will you know from the list of options who to choose?
Market research carried out by Curia Market Research found there were three main attributes clients look for when choosing their build team.
Most importantly are the trade qualifications required for completing the right level of carpentry work. Beyond this you also need a team who can provide comprehensive pricing, project management and work with reliable and reputable sub trades who are equally professional and proficient. Being trade qualified isn’t just a piece of paper, or a course you have previously completed, it’s the ongoing use of those skills on every job you undertake.
Next is professionalism which covers everything from ethics, appearance, health and safety and accountability through to competence and communication and much more too. Belonging to professional bodies, such as Master Builders, provide the opportunity to share and debate ideas and practices with others within the industry. Allowing the potential to align with other companies doing a really great job
Being a professional is not a level you reach, it’s a bar which is constantly being raised.
The final consideration is finding someone who has a reputation for quality work. Most people can now acknowledge there is a range which covers anything from Basic Quality to something considered to be High Quality. Everything we build has to meet basic quality standards, however high quality will go beyond good and something desirable by every home owner. Quality isn’t just about the paint on the walls, or the type of flooring you have installed, it’s about exceeding expectations for both the design and the finished build, including the service you receive along the way.
